Foothills Sexual Chocolate
As part of a beer trade with Beer Club 4 Men, I received a bottle of Foothills Sexual Chocolate. The beer pours a black color with a bubbly tan head. The aroma consists of smoked malts, chocolate, vanilla, oak, licorice, molasses, fig, and hints of toffee. The taste is smoky, much more than expected, with toasted malts, caramel, molasses, fig, vanilla, and licorice. Some sweeter toffee comes out in the finish and the after taste has lots of dry chocolate nibs and powder. The alcohol content is 9.75% ABV. I would say that despite it “sexual” name, it was much more smoky than expected. I was anticipating silky smooth milk chocolate flavors, but this is a wonderful chocolate based beer with vanilla and toffee.
